3 Powerful Thoughts To Have Today

ThewonderfulthingsHere’s an interesting little fact…

Today, it’s likely you’ll have at least 1,000 thoughts. Actually, possibly even more. According to the National Science Foundation, the average person has anywhere from 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts every single day.

That’s a lot of thoughts!

Every day we need to take time in the morning to “tune” our minds so we have healthy, productive and positive thoughts for the rest of the day. It’s like tuning an instrument. But, in this instance, the instrument is our mind and we’re tuning in the best thoughts.

Or, another way to say it, take time this morning to “Get Your Mind Right’.

And, I’m not just talking about exercising and meditation. Don’t get me wrong, those are BOTH important things to do every morning.

But, what I’m specifically talking about is taking time today to tune into the right thoughts so you can align your mind with the way you want to feel and the results you want to create today.

Once I added this into my morning routine, it changed everything. I became more inspired, motivated and ready to charge forward through the day (even on those days when I had a lot of crap and problems to work through!).

So, how do you do it?

Take 2-5 minutes. Choose a couple of good quotes to really laser in and focus on (I included some below). Tune into your most healthy, productive and inspiring thoughts that the quotes make you think about. [Read more…]

How To Keep Taking Steps Forward (Even When You Don’t Feel Like It)


Ifyoudon't(1200628) Final

Lately, I’ve had to dig deep (and I mean real deep) to keep pushing and take care of the things I need to handle.

On Saturday, after breakfast, I had to motivate and pump myself up for two hours before I dragged myself into my office and sat down to finally tackle my taxes.

On Sunday, I pushed through the voice of the Chief Negativity Officer in my mind that works tirelessly to fan the flames of my fears and doubts that things will not work out.

Yesterday, I pushed through the feeling of being so behind with work that I might as well let some things go because I was never going to get it all done.

Have you ever noticed how sometimes we have to push through and do things we don’t feel like doing?

Well, I’ve been thinking about this a lot since it doesn’t seem like resistance, doubts, or the Chief Negativity Officer are going away anytime soon.

And here are three things things I took away from all of these experiences:

1. Resistance sucks.

2. Doubts are just as terrible.

3. And when our Chief Negativity Officer gets triggered, it can really go crazy.

But, I also have to say, there really is grace underneath it all.

Every single time we dig deep and overcome something we thought was too hard, or would take too long, or would never happen… something in us changes for the better.

We get stronger and build our faith with each experience.

We grow in all the ways we need and gain more clarity about who we are, what’s most important to us and how to keep building the life we really want.

So, in case you’re looking for a quick reminder, I’m going to pass along the same message I’ve been telling myself lately …

Dig deep today if you must, but make sure to take at least one step forward. So many more good things are on the other side of what you’re pushing through.


An Interesting Fact About Happiness


Here’s an interesting little fact…

According to a recent study, many 70 year olds are happier than 30 year olds.


Well, the study explained that older people have a greater appreciation for the little things in life. Older people also have found more appreciation for who they are – their strengths, weaknesses and everything they’ve been through.

So, what’s the takeaway message? [Read more…]

Finding Clarity: When You Don’t Know What Else You Can Do

Anythingyoucan'tcontrol(1200628)Have you ever had a time when you’ve been trying so hard but something really important to you still hasn’t worked out? What you’ve been hoping for hasn’t fallen into place like you wanted.

Maybe you’re even unsure about your best steps forward because it’s not like you haven’t been trying everything. You’ve been patient and open and willing and trying and believing, but it doesn’t seem to matter because it’s not working.

So, what do you do? You can’t just give up. You’ve got to figure something out. What’s the best path forward?

I asked myself this exact question the other day. Even though I’ve been in situations like this before that are filled with uncertainty, I always seem to reach the point when I need a reminder of the best path forward.

You’ve got to control the things you’re meant to and trust the things you’re not able to control, I reminded myself the other day.

Achieving The Ideal Balance

There’s a balance we’re meant to strike because it’s not always about resigning to situations and deciding there’s nothing you can do. But, it’s also not about trying to control everything or thinking things need to happen the way you expect or on your timeline.

Instead it’s about achieving an ideal balance. You live from your Extraordinary Side, or Higher Self, each day so you can best work through whatever situation or circumstances you’re confronted with.

On some days that means it’s time to take another step forward and find your way through the latest challenge.

On other days, it means you accept there’s nothing more you can do because you’ve already done all you could. On these days, you’re being asked to let go and trust that whatever is happening is somehow or someway leading you exactly where you need to be (even if it’s not what you wanted).

You live each day according to the wisdom of one of the most profound and timeless truths…

Accept the things you cannot change
Have the courage to change the things you can
And the wisdom to know the difference
